This information is relevant if one considers that in all cases mushrooms were consumed as at least three consecutive meals (in other words, consumption over at least 3 days can be expected) while inappropriate storage (for example, prolonged room temperature, repeated freezing and thawing) may affect mushroom quality (Burton & Noble, 1993; Venturini, Reyes, Rivera, Oria, & Blanco, 2011). of edible wild mushrooms growing in Poland, Catecholamine and serotonin content of foods, effect on urinary excretion of homovanillic and 5‐hydroxyindoleacetic acid, Three new triterpenoids from European mushroom, Comparison of the chemical contents of selected wild growing mushrooms (text in Polish), Lead in edible mushrooms. One should note that this species can grow on soils with high salinity, as noted for specimens collected from the Hel Peninsula in Poland that revealed a mean Na content in stipes reaching 11000 mg/kg dw (Maćkiewicz, Dryżałowska, Mielewska, & Falandysz, 2006). In both studies, mushroom specimens were collected from mixed Picea and deciduous forest from locations in which no significant contamination could be expected. pallidifolia characterized by pale to white gills, also sometimes identified as a representative of T. joachimii (Bon & Riva). A study using an artificial gastric fluid system has demonstrated a high bioavailability of Ca, Cu, and Mg from T. equestre fruiting bodies (Kała et al., 2017). Three groups of 5 mice each were given suspension of T. equestre powder in water, boiled aqueous extract and chloroform-methanol extract dissolved in Miglyol 812 by gavage for three consecutive days. Piotr Rzymski and Piotr Klimaszyk contributed equally to this manuscript by providing ideas, researching studies, and writing the manuscript. The yellow pigment of T. equestre, 7,7' bi-physcion, has been identified. No renal or hepatic failure was present. The first study evaluated the effects in an unspecified laboratory strain of female Mus musculus L. mice from the breeding colony of the Univ. The majority of animals employed for such purpose are rodents, mostly mice, rats or rabbits. Since such tools are now widely accessible, a genetic‐based taxonomic characterization of the investigated mushroom should be presented in any study involving T. equestre, including ecological, nutritional, biomedical and toxicological studies (including reports of poisoning, if mushroom material is available). Quite the same Wikipedia. Statins themselves can cause rhabdomyolysis although it is more commonly reported when statins are used in conjunction with other drugs, which can potentiate an effect (Mendes et al., 2014; Thompson, Clarkson, & Karas, 2003). Link, A. virosa (Fr.) In two cases individual vulnerability can be suspected because co‐consuming people did not experience any symptoms following mushroom ingestion. CKmax, maximum creatine kinase concentration; ALTmax, maximum alanine aminotransferase; ASTmax, maximum aspartate aminotransferase; ECG, electrocardiography; EMG, electromyography. There is also a need for detailed molecular analyses within the T. equestre species to establish the magnitude of intraspecific variation and its potential effect on mushroom quality.  |  Erythorocyturia. The majority of studies assessing contamination of wild‐mushrooms, including T. equestre, have employed various spectroanalytical methods (for example, optical emission spectrometry, mass spectrometry, X‐ray fluorescence) to determine the content of (potentially) toxic metals and metalloids. Toxicological risks and nutritional value of wild edible mushroom species -a half-century monitoring study. However, this study used mushrooms that had been frozen at –20 °C for 1 year before being given to the tested animals. Tricholoma auratum (Paulet) Gillet Tricholoma flavovirens (Pers.) Kumm., Macrolepiota procera, Imleria badia or Suillus luteus (L.) Roussel), were a more common cause of such gastrointestinal events reported to the toxicological unit. In all cases adverse effects had onset following consecutive ingestion of 100 to 400 g daily. A preferred approach is to perform PCR amplification of the rDNA ITS1/5.8/ITS2 region using primer pair ITS4/ITS5 (5′‐ GCATATCAATAAGCGGAGGA‐3′/5′‐ GGAAGTAAAAGTCGTAACAAGG‐3′) (White, Bruns, Lee, & Taylor, 1990) and amplification of the 5′ region of the mitochondrial cox1 gene using primer pair CoxU1/CoxR (5′‐TCTACTAATGCTAAAGATATTGG‐3′/5′‐ CACCGGCTAATACAGGTAA‐3′) (Damon et al., 2010). A series of poisonings with T. equestre, encompassing a total of 3 affected adult subjects and 1 child, were also recorded between 2001 and 2010 by two Polish medical units located in Gdańsk (Northern Poland) and Biała Podlaska (Eastern Poland). Mortality rate was 23.8% (5/21). Firstly, the doses at which significant effects were detectable (mostly by increased creatine kinase concentration) were extremely high. . As found, creatine kinase and aminotransferase concentrations were significantly increased, so were myoglobin levels. Languages. An emerging group of pollutants is represented by rare earth elements (REEs). (2001) in order to evaluate whether T. equestre could potentially be a causative agent of observed human poisonings. Last but not least, an effort should be made to evaluate the existence of genetic traits associated with individual susceptibility to T. equestre ingestion. The description of poisoning cases has some notable shortcomings. The most poisonous species include those producing amatoxin peptides (with α‐amanitin revealing the greatest toxicity) such as Amanita phalloides (Vaill. Matportalen: Matsoppen som ble giftsopp (2005, 2008). Data from interventional studies involving human subjects consuming T. equestre is limited to only two studies. Bertillon and A. bisporigera G.F. Extracts of Tricholoma equestre mushrooms stored for 12 months at (-)20 degrees C did not cause rhabdomyolysis in male BALB/c mice. However, instead of questioning the general safety of these mushrooms, authors have fairly suggested that individual sensitivity could play a role in the development of such symptoms, and that rhabdomyolysis may represent an unspecified reaction, unrelated to specific mushroom species. & Hök) Snell and Imleria badia Fr. In the other fatal case, a subject had a history of alcoholism, which itself can be a cause of rhabdomyolysis (Zimmerman & Shen, 2013). Contrary to Bedry et al. The only evidence for concluding that T. equestre triggered rhabdomyolysis was based upon the in vivo experiments which were discussed in the previous section of this paper. Tricholoma equestre poisoning "About Health Canada" article on Tricholoma equestre poisoning. Erythorocyturia. It is also known that pre‐analytical conditions such as handling of the animal during blood collection and site of sampling can significantly affect the determined creatine kinase concentrations (Matsuzawa & Ishikawa, 1993). Tricholoma equestre Tricholoma equestre or Tricholoma flavovirens, also known as man on horseback or yellow knight is a formerly widely eaten but hazardous fungus of the genus Tricholoma that forms ectomycorrhiza with pine trees.

Due to the number of gaps with respect to mushroom toxicity, we would like to draw attention to the urgent need for further polyphasic investigations in this field. A phenolic compound p‐hydroxybenzoic acid (35.5 mg/kg dw) has also been determined in T. equestre (Ribeiro et al., 2006). The reported cases deliver no information on the habitat from which the mushrooms were collected. The main clinical symptoms in adults included muscle weakness, nausea without vomiting, and significantly increased levels of creatine kinase, aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase. T. flavovirens, (Peerson), and syn. Toxins (Basel). Unfortunately, none of the in vivo studies performed on T. equestre offer any reassuring information that factors artificially influencing creatine kinase activity had been ruled out. Cap diameter varies from 3 to 15 cm. Additionally, there is no single case of human poisoning linked to T. terreum. Kotl. One subject revealed an increased concentration of MB isoform of creatine kinase, and respiratory failure followed by cardiac arrest, eventually resulting in a fatal outcome. of Water Protection, Faculty of Biology, Adam Mickiewicz Univ., Umultowska 89, 61–614 Poznań, Poland. Known as Grünling Pilz in German and canari in French, it has been treasured as an edible mushroom worldwide and is especially abundant in France. Considering the available and growing evidence of the toxicity ofT. Particular care should be taken when reporting cases of poisoning with T. equestre to avoid hype and mis‐ or overinterpretation of data. The same dose of freshly frozen mushrooms did not affect this parameter significantly. It is unknown whether the poisoned subjects had any previous exposure (and of what kind) to T. equestre. Physicians should be aware of the possibility of acute intoxications after repeated consumption of large quantities of Tricholoma equestre. (2001) who performed gavage administration, this study used mushrooms mixed into the feed of the animals. NLM (2001) also caused a significant increase in creatine kinase concentration at 9 g/kg bw/day. Number of times cited according to CrossRef: Vitamins and Minerals Biofortification of Edible Plants. However, Muszyńska et al. Animal toxicity study of Tricholoma equestre mushrooms stored for 12 months at (-)20 degrees C was performed using 30 male BALB/c mice. In summary, the available clinical data on T. equestre toxicity in humans, particularly on its ability to induce rhabdomyolysis, lacks essential information that would enable a clear decision to be made as to whether this mushroom can be the unambiguous cause. Considering the available and growing evidence of the toxicity of T. equestre, a number of countries have officially registered T. equestre as a poisonous species (Bedry & Gromb, 2009) (Figure 1). (2005). No changes in aminotransferase activity were observed. Rhabdomyolysis has been triggered by the consumption of morphologically related but genetically distinctive mushroom species to T. equestre. These observations were also supported by in vivo rodent experiments involving 3‐day exposure to powdered or extracted fruiting bodies of T. equestre that reported an increase in serum creatine kinase and disorganization of muscle fibers. Cadmium in environment ‐ ecological and methodological problems, ICP/MS and ICP/AES elemental analysis (38 elements). Introduction. S. Lundell (see Deng and Yao, 2005) Contamination, bioconcentration and distribution of mercury in Tricholoma spp. Final report on the safety assessment of capsicum annuum extract, capsicum annuum fruit extract, capsicum annuum resin, capsicum annuum fruit powder, capsicum frutescens fruit, capsicum frutescens fruit extract, capsicum frutescens resin, and capsaicin. Tricholoma flavovirens) is also known as the Man on Horseback; why that should be is a mystery. Strikingly, the report by Bedry et al., 2001 provides no objective confirmation that T. equestre was actually consumed by the described subjects (for example, identification of Tricholoma spores in gastric content). (2008). published a highly publicized paper in the New England Journal of Medicine entitled “Wild‐mushroom intoxication as a cause of rhabdomyolysis.” This brief report described a total of 12 clinically relevant cases that occurred in France and involved intoxication with T. equestre, some with a fatal outcome. One should also note a number of limitations associated with the in vivo model used to test the myotoxicity of T. equestre extracts. The content of vitamin B1 (thiamine) and B2 (riboflavin) falls in the range of 0.40 to 0.85 mg/100 g dw and 0.50 to 0.85 mg/100 g dw, respectively (Karosene & Vilimaite, 1971). In vivo toxicology, in which whole foods or their ingredients are administrated to animals for evaluation of acute, subacute, or chronic effects, has been a gold standard in toxicity assessment. Direct damage to myocytes with resultant onset on rhabdomyolysis occurs after ingestion of the so-called “man-on-horseback” mushroom, Tricholoma equestre (also known as Tricholoma flavovirens). Adult male Swiss mice (each group n = 3) were given a powder of freeze‐dried fresh T. equestre for 3 days by gastric intubation in three doses: 2, 4, and 6 g/kg body weight (bw). As reported by Ribeiro et al. More care should be taken when reporting cases of human poisoning to fully identify T. equestre as the causative agent and to exclude a number of interfering factors. The flavomannin‐6,6‐dimethylether, a polyphenol with a dimeric pre‐anthraquinone structure that is thought to be a mushroom yellow pigment, has been isolated and purified from cooked fruiting bodies, and further demonstrated to exhibit in vitro cytostatic effects in human adenocarcinoma colorectal Caco‐2 cells by inducing cell‐cycle arrest without genotoxic activity (Pachón‐Peña et al., 2009; Steglich et al., 1972). Similarly to the description of cases from France and Lithuania, some important information on the circumstances associated with T. equestre poisoning is missing. Singer (Falandysz et al., 2017). Therefore, the potential interference of matrix cannot be excluded in the case of the Spanish mushrooms. Tricholoma equestre. The method used to confirm actual ingestion of T. equestre was not reported. 2012 Mar-Apr;27(2):402-8. doi: 10.1590/S0212-16112012000200009. (2001), the most significant changes were elicited at doses corresponding to 3 kg of fresh mushrooms consumed daily for 3 consecutive days by a 60‐kg adult. In spite of this, T. equestre displayed rather low antioxidant capacity as found using 2,2‐diphenyl‐1‐picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) free radical and 2,2′‐azino‐bis‐3‐ethylbenzthiazoline‐6‐sulfonic acid (ABTS) assays (Ribeiro et al., 2006; Robaszkiewicz et al., 2010). populinum, associated with deciduous trees, are representatives of the T. frondosae clade not the T. equestre group (which is associated with coniferous habitats). Tricholoma equestre can be recognized through a combination of features. In this paper, we review all the available information on T. equestre including its morphological and molecular characterization, nutritional value, levels of contaminants observed in fruiting bodies, the possibility of mistake with species that are morphologically similar, and the in vivo data on safety and cases of human intoxication. All intoxications described in scientific literature are so far limited to regions of France, Poland, Germany and Lithuania. Pegler, Cantharellus cibarius Fr., Albatrellus ovinus (Schaeff.) Riddarmusseronen kan vara giftig Swedish article on T. flavovirens and its toxicity. (2004) did not find any effects of powder/extracts made from T. equestre in BALB/c mice. Heart attack. In selected patients acute muscle injury was evidenced by electromyography and/or histological analyses of quadriceps femoris. A species‐wide analytical screening for the presence of myotoxin already identified in mushrooms (for example, cycloprop‐2‐ene carboxylic acid, selected saponaceolides) should be conducted for the Tricholoma genus but also for other genera whose representatives can be mistaken for T. equestre (as outlined in the “Similar species” section). The dose of consumed T. equestre fruiting bodies was not estimated nor was the form of consumption established (fresh or dried; fried, boiled or as a soup). The stipe is usually yellow to yellow‐green 3 to 10 cm long, with an even diameter. Being ectomycorrhizal, T. equestre is not commercially cultivated but in Europe, particularly in its central part, fruiting bodies collected from the wild are seasonally sold on the market (Kasper‐Pakosz, Pietras, & Łuczaj, 2016). In spite of the fact that the first cases of human poisoning with T. equestre were documented in scientific literature over 15 years ago, as yet no causative toxin has been identified and isolated. Individuals with a fatal outcome also developed dyspnea, acute myocarditis (arrhythmia, cardiovascular collapse, and wide QRS complex) and hyperthermia. ex Fr.) However, several outbreaks of delayed severe rhabdomyolysis, which is fatal in some cases due to kidney failure, following the repeated consumption of the species occurred in France and Poland in approximately 2000. Rzymski P, Klimaszyk P (2018) Is the yellow knight’s mushroom edible or not? Known as Grünling in German, gąska zielonka in Polish, and canari in French, it has been treasured as an edible mushroom worldwide and is especially abundant in France. Tricholoma equestre (Carl Linné, 1753 ex Paul Kummer, 1871) sin. Spores are white, elliptical, 5 to 8.5 × 3 to 6 μm. Tricholoma equestre or Tricholoma flavovirens, also known as man on horseback or yellow knight is a formerly widely eaten but hazardous fungus of the genus Tricholoma that forms ectomycorrhiza with pine trees.. Get the latest public health information from CDC: https://www.coronavirus.gov. Such information would be valuable because, as noted in the “Morphological and molecular identification” section, specimens previously identified as T. equestre var. As indicated by values of the bioconcentrated factor (BCF) calculated on basis of element content in soil, fruiting bodies of T. equestre significantly accumulate (BCF > 1) Cu, Se, and Zn (which is a common observation in aboveground mushroom species) and Ag, Cd, Re, and Tl (Alonso et al., 2003; Mleczek et al., 2016a). Tricholoma equestre or Tricholoma flavovirens, also known as Man on horseback or Yellow knight is a formerly widely eaten but hazardous fungus of the Tricholoma genus that forms ectomycorrhiza with pine trees.. The findings of in vivo experiments could well support a hypothesis that laboratory mice may be sensitive to a mushroom‐based diet or that various edible mushrooms may cause adverse effects if consumed in great amounts. In profuse sweating without fever, and respiratory insufficiency oc-curred. Information on previous experience (if any) in consuming T. equestre by the affected individuals is unfortunately lacking. (2001), the mushrooms were collected in southwestern France – one should note that recent molecular investigations have revealed that some French specimens, previously considered as T. equestre, in fact belong to the distinct T. frondosae clade (for details see the “Morphological and molecular identification” section). An interesting statistic was provided by Gawlikowski, Romek, and Satora (2015) who summarized all mushroom poisoning cases recorded in 2002 to 2009 by a toxicological unit in Kraków, Poland. The results were compared to extracts obtained in the same manner from P. ostreatus and 70 mg/kg bw/day p‐phenylenediamine, serving as a positive control. All animals survived the experiment. Moreover, it would also be beneficial to study how storage conditions (room temperature, freezing/thawing) and mushroom processing (for example, boiling, stewing, frying, microwaving with water) can affect the chemical quality and microbial composition (particularly occurrence of mold species) of T. equestre fruiting bodies, and exerted toxicity (if any). The determined acids include oxalic (2.1 to 2.6 g/kg dw), aconitic (4.6 to 5.2 g/kg dw), citric (22.0 to 23.7 g/kg dw), 57.4 to 61.1 g/kg dw), and fumaric (6.7 to 7.9 g/kg dw). Being valued for its taste, T. equestre has a long tradition of collection from the wild as food. T. auratum (Paulet) Gillet) commonly known as the Yellow Knight mushroom or Man on Horseback, has been widely considered as an edible species in various geographical locations, with no scientific or anecdotal evidence of any potentially toxic effects. Bulgaria, Macro and trace mineral constituents and radionuclides in mushrooms, health benefits and risks, Concentration of Mercury in wild growing higher fungi and underlying substrate near Lake Wdzydze. Instead, all studies present a rather high variation of obtained results in treated groups, as indicated by values of standard deviation. T. auratum (Paulet) Gillet) commonly known as the Yellow Knight mushroom or Man on Horseback, has been widely considered as an edible species in various geographical locations, with no scientific or anecdotal evidence of any potentially toxic effects. Recently, it caused several cases of delayed rhabdomyolysis in humans and elevated serum creatine kinase (CK) activities in laboratory mice (Mus musculus) in a dose–response study. The mean content of Ca, Mg, Cu, and Mn in T. equestre falls within the usual ranges of minerals in wild mushroom species as reported by Kalač et al. plant and soil samples collected form japanese forests, How to increase serotonin in the human brain without drugs. Quél., Lactarius deliciosus (L.) Gray and Boletus fragrans (Lanmaoa fragrans) Vittad. equestre, a number of countries have officially registeredT. Moreover, the conducted investigations also support the view that what was identified previously as T. equestre var. Mineral Composition of Three Popular Wild Mushrooms from Poland. Due to its distinctively different morphological features, there is a lower chance of mistaking T. equestre for other gilled mushroom species with green or yellow green caps and/or stipe such as Rusulla aurea Pers., R. clavoflava Grove, young specimens of Amanita phalloides (Vaill. The yellow tricholoma (Tricholoma equestre or Tricholoma flavovirens), a wild species growing particularly in sandy pinewoods, was considered edible and tasty. Comment on "Mushroom poisoning: A proposed new clinical classification". Just better. This case is the only one of all in documented T. equestre poisonings in which concentration of MB isoform of creatine kinase, a cardiac marker expressed mostly in the myocardium (Karras & Kane, 2001), was reported additionally to total creatine kinase level (Anand, Chwaluk, & Sut, 2009; Chodorowski, Waldman, & Sein Anand, 2002). are considered as a delicacy and used in local gastronomy of many cultures [12–14]. Here, we report four cases of acute poisoning caused by T. equestre, including one lethal outcome in Lithuania between 2004 and 2013. Carbohydrates, amounting to 35 to 60 g/100 g dry weight (dw), represent the most abundant macronutrients of T. equestre. Comment on “Study of biological activity of Tricholoma equestre fruiting bodies and their safety for human”. Animal toxicity study of Tricholoma equestre mushrooms stored for 12 months at (-)20 degrees C was performed using 30 male BALB/c mice. (2008), the most abundant free indispensable amino acids are alanine (687 mg/100 g dw), lysine (252 mg/100 g dw), and leucine (102 mg/100 g dw). The authors speculated that the most plausible cause of these effects was the inappropriate processing of mushrooms during transport and storage (Gawlikowski et al., 2015). As self‐reported, the patient had often consumed large quantities of T. equestre in the past without any noticeable adverse effects. Positive Babiński sign. Compr Rev Food Sci Food Saf 17:1309–1324 9. The main pigment compound found in T. equestre is flavomannin‐6,6‐dimethylether (Steglich, Topfer, Reininger, Gluchoff, & Arpin, 1972). T. equestre shows a wide distribution encompassing Europe, North America, Central Asia, and Japan. This threshold would also not be exceeded even in the very unlikely scenario of repeated daily consumption of 30 g dw of T. equestre for 7 consecutive days. Link and many others. (2005) did not employ molecular tools for identification of collected specimens and assessment of their phylogenetic position. No significant change in any parameter was observed (Nieminen et al., 2005). A 71‐old‐year man was admitted to hospital after he consumed a mushroom meal twice a day for 6 consecutive days and observed muscle weakness and myalgia. Unfortunately, case descriptions rarely provide exact information on the applied treatment. (2005) who monitored biochemical parameters in 56 subjects (30 females, 26 male) aged 18 and 76 years old voluntarily consuming T. equestre as a single meal of 70 and 150 g of fresh mushrooms (n = 43) or for 4 consecutive days at a total dose ranging from 300 and 1200 g. Over half (57.1%) of the investigated subjects suffered from type 2 diabetes, 48.2% took statins (simvastatin, lovastatin, fluvastatin, and atorvastatin) and 12.5% were using fibrates (enofibrate, ciprofibrate) to treat hyperlipidemia.
